I'll be happy to buy the DVD of this show. I'll never forget the indescribable thrill when I first watched View From the Vault I, from Three Rivers Stadium in July 1990, and saw myself dancing in one of the crowd shots during Tom Thumbs Blues. Talk about being transported back in time. My wife still can't believe my full beard and the wild wooly head of hair I had back then.

I'm of the age where the majority of the Dead shows I saw were between 1987, when I was 18 years old and moved out of the parents house, and 1995. So I have been perfectly happy to have many of the concerts I actually attended subsequently released in professional quality video to treasure forever or as long as DVD remains a viable format. Of course I'd love to see professionally released video from earlier years as well. Even a compilation video of some of the best quality footage from multiple venues would be in my checkout cart if no complete shows are available.

In any case this happens to be quite a good show, in my opinion. I especially love the Loser, one of my favorite versions.
